Fifth if you include the Japanese version of 'Alternative'!

I don’t think it’s going on streaming / iTunes etc. It’s CD only I think.
It's on iTunes now

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Dolby Digital or DTS are not lossless formats, so a rip of such a format from a DVD is always lossy. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA are the lossless equivalents but those are not supported by DVD specs (you need a bluray for that). I was referring to the lossless format I ripped them into - giving me a...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

There’s literally no point in there ever being a live album of Performance. Firstly, that show wasn’t about playing live, it was about visually staging the songs into some sort of narrative. 95% of that show is not live. The only parts that are live are the vocals. That’s it….. Not quite. After 'Al...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Greetings, I thought 'So Sorry, I Said' was only performed on the Performance tour? Probably, I likely misremembered. I guess that then raises the question about the potential for a 2CD set of Performance. Whichever tour it was from, it was pretty great. Retro. :) I achieved this years ago by creat...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Greetings, I would particularly like the MCMLXXXIX duet version of So Sorry, I Said on CD. When in time I heard Liza's version and then the PSB demo, they felt so flat in comparison. It's a magnificent song and this rendition was the closest it ever came to reaching its full potential. If there is ...

Re: Do you think a producer like Mark Ronson could work for PSB?

Mentioned here a few times before, but would love a lush electronic album produced by Ulrich Schnauss, who did that wonderful mix of 'Memory Of The Future', and has many fine albums of his own and with other collaborators. Would be a great way to retain the electronic emphasis of recent albums, but ...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I’m usually up on these things... and I own the Monkey Business vinyl... but was there ever an official CD single released? Thanks! 😎 Yup: https://www.petshopboysshop.co.uk/petshopboys/CD-Singles/Monkey-business/6CAX11K8000 Probably quicker to look it up online than pose the question on here, to be...

Plus the single release was timed with their first tour in 1989 (the programme shared the cover art photos, if I recall). I always assumed the crowd noise in the single mix was a slight nod to the upcoming tour.

Re: Top Three Sleeve Artwork

Introspective - vinyl cover The standard vinyl cover is a thing of beauty. Graphic, bold and effortlessly cool. The hot pink and red bars right next to each other shouldn't really work but for me it is my favourite part. It's very frameable (I have done exactly that for my study). Should be scaled ...
